Universal Compatibility becomes that obstacle. Many, many Safety Grips have been manufactured. The Incra V120 "conversion kit" is expected to be compatible to all of those. That being the case, the fit ust allow for some "slop".
As a side comment: I looked for a kit that would allow me to mount a Safety Grip on an Incra Miter Gauge and I am unable to locate it.
While looking, I found this note in the Incra Documentation:
Shopsmith Safety Grip Note: This model is NOT compatible with the Shopsmith Safety Grip handle. The V120 must be ordered directly from Shopsmith to be compatible with their Safety Grip.
In the online documentation I found this related comment:The Shopsmith Edition Incra Miter v120 kit has a miter bar designed to fit your Shopsmith Mark V. To the standard Incra Miter v120 we've added an adapter that lets you attach your existing Shopsmith Miter Gauge Safety Grip to the gauge for added safety and control.
I purchased my V120 (Shopsmith compatible) from Shopsmith in September of 2009. There is no mention of an adapter kit in my documentation so I assume it was part of the hardware provided by Incra to Shopsmith.
